    I have a client that wants to get rid of runners from what I believe she said was Trumpet Vine. She asked if she could spray round up on them without it effecting the main plant. I wasn't sure so here I am......

    Can she?

    seems to me that the round up would "run" up the runners and do harm to the main plant. I guess it depends on how far up the round up went. It's designed to move through the plant to the root system.

    use a defoliant like sythe or diquat.

    Is this something that is available to a homeowner? Home Depot or TSC?
